Phra That Doi Wiang

Set atop a mountain there is an old pagoda believed to contain the relics from the Lord Buddha. The temple is assumed to have originally been built in 677 AD, according to palm-leaf manuscripts. Later, however, the temple was burnt down in a forest fire and only the pagoda and small hall remained. There are three holy images of the Buddha in this temple and it is believed that their worship can bring rain. A Lord Buddha’s Relic Bathing Ceremony is held every year here on the eighth day of the waning moon of the seventh lunar month.
